      Survey - This cemetery was surveyed on March 23, 1973, September 26, 1974 and April 5, 1976. Milton Forsyth visited the cemetery on 1 Mar 2006 through the courtesy of Ken and Kathy Walker, who live next to the cemetery. He provided an update and photographs. The cemetery was previously described in the survey as destroyed, which was in error.

      Graves, Marked - There were 15 marked stones.

      Graves, Unmarked - The cemetery contained more than a hundred unidentified graves in at least 9 rows.

      Status (2006) - The cemetery of less than one acre is in a wooded area to the south of the residence at 7409 Harmony Church Rd, the house of which address sits on the site of the former church. The cemetery was registered in the name of the "Primitive Baptist Association" by the previous owner when the adjoining property was sold [OC PIN 9837-38-8463]. It is in a natural state but not overgrown, and much is covered by periwinkle. It is watched over by the Walkers.
